2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Race Car Revealed [VIDEO]

Porsche has unveiled the 2013 911 GT3 Cup race car at the company’s “Night of Champions” celebration. The new 911 GT3 Cup is the first motorsports version of the new 991 series and is based on the upcoming 911 GT3 street car.

New 911 GT3 Cup is powered by a 3.8-litre six-cylinder flat engine producing 460 hp (up by 10 hp compared to the outgoing model). Power is sent to the rear axle through a six-speed dog-type gearbox developed by Porsche Motorsport which is operated via shift paddles at the steering whee.

Michelin race slicks are increased by two centimetres to 27 centimetres at the front and by ten millimetres at the rear axle, measuring 31 centimetres, when compared to the previous generation 911 GT3 Cup car.

There is also a newly developed race braking system, newly designed safety cage, newly developed race seat and a rescue hatch in the roof providing easy access for primary medical attention and for the extrication of the driver.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is available exclusively in white, and priced from 181,200 Euro (roughly £146k) plus VAT.
